ITechLaw World Technology Law Conference and Annual Meeting Set for May 1-3 in Scottsdale, Arizona, USA

The International Technology Law Association (ITechLaw) will hold its 2013 World Technology Law Conference and Annual Meeting in Scottsdale, Arizona, USA, May 1-3. ITechLaw is the premier worldwide organization for legal professionals practicing in the global technology sector, with members in nearly 60 countries.

As always, the ITechLaw conference will feature a one-of-a-kind program of sessions led by prominent speakers from around the world, which will focus on the newest technology law developments and their application to attendees' law practices. Event registration is now open.

In addition to the conference's valuable educational offerings, participants will enjoy many networking opportunities and social events, including opening and closing receptions and an optional black-tie Gala Dinner. Attendees will include leading attorneys in private practice, in-house counsel, business executives, government officials and academics from many countries.

"Our World Technology Law Conference and Annual Meeting is the only forum that will both update you on recent technology law developments and allow you to participate in a unique networking experience," said ITechLaw President John Beardwood of Fasken Martineau LLP. "It's designed to support you in growing your practice, your expertise, and your worldwide referral network. I urge members and non-members to join us: you'll make connections and establish relationships here that you could not develop in any other way."

ITechLaw's popular conferences feature discussions on current legal topics of international importance, presented by top lawyers and leading speakers in the field of technology law. The two days of educational programming in Scottsdale will include sessions on crowdfunding, Big Data, mobile payments, social media and gaming, IT and M&A transactions, open source, cloud computing, outsourcing, and healthcare technology issues, among others. The program format is varied and includes speaker-led presentations as well as interactive workshops, panel discussions and roundtable breakout sessions.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
